> Breshkovsky, Catherine, full name YEKATERINA KONSTANTINOVNA BRESHKO-BRESHKOVSKAYA
> (1844-1934), Russian
> revolutionary leader, known as the Little Grandmother (babushka) of the Russian
> Revolution, born near Vitsyebsk (now in Belarus). At
> the age of 26 Breshkovsky left her wealthy, aristocratic family to join the
> followers of the anarchist Mikhail Bakunin in Kyyiv (now in
> Ukraine). In 1874 she was imprisoned in Saint Petersburg, and in 1878 she was
> exiled to Siberia. After her release in 1896 she founded
> a political society, the Social Revolutionists. Again threatened with
> imprisonment, she went to Switzerland in 1900 and to the United
> States in 1904-5. After returning to Russia for the unsuccessful Revolution of
> 1905, she was again imprisoned between 1907 and 1910
> and banished to Siberia. During the 1917 Revolution she was released from Siberia
> by Aleksandr Kerensky and was enthusiastically
> welcomed in St. Petersburg, then called Petrograd. Her role in the Kerensky
> government terminated with the seizure of power by the
> Bolsheviks in November 1917. Breshkovsky was again compelled to flee and in 1919
> went to Czechoslovakia, where she remained until
> her death. --
